Subways are the great equalizers. Whether you're a local heading to work or a tourist heading to the museum, the subway is usually the most efficient way to go about it, forcing everyone to mix in the same underground melting pot.

While all that hustle and bustle highlights the primarily utilitarian purpose of mass transit systems, we encourage you to take a second to stop and smell the roses. That's why we posed this question to our readers: What's your favorite subway stop in the world?

The answers ranged from the ordinary (like Washington, D.C.'s Tenletown stop) to the extraordinary (like artistic Kungstradgarden in Stockholm.) Though, a few outliers posited that their favorite subway is the one that's home to the sandwiches. And, why not! There are 37 million possible sandwich variations around the world, after all.

But, keeping with the underground trains, here are a few of our readers' favorite places to commute through. Don't see your favorite? Add it to the slideshow!
